The Plain English Campaign has recognised Pendle Council for its clear and well written recycling information.

Campaign judges praised the council’s annual refuse and recycling calendar leaflet, delivered to all Pendle households, and a special recycling edition of the council newspaper, Pendle News.

Campaign director Chrissie Maher said: “Although recycling is not the most exciting of subjects, staff at Pendle Council have produced material that is well written and attractive.”

The council also won a Plain English Award in 2011 for providing a range of communication materials.
